Scotland Photowalk 2015230Here is the official Event for the 2014 Donegal Photowalk. The kickoff will be Saturday morning, probably around 9am, however,  there will be people out much earlier to catch the sunrise, that's for sure. Some of us will even be there already on Thursday and Friday. (A good place to find the earlybirds is probably the local bar scene).  Please note that you don't have to confirm a booking or anything. Whoever shows up will be welcome.  If you can join us only for one day, Saturday or Sunday, that'll be fine, too, of course. We'll make sure to announce tour details and meeting points soon.  We hope to see you all there. And if someone has good connections to the weather gods, please let them know that we'd prefer the "no rain" option.  Cheers Athena, John & AndyDonegal Photowalk 20142014-09-27 09:00:0029

Scotland Photowalk 2015230Here is the official Event for the 2013 UK Seaside Photowalk. The official kickoff will be Saturday morning, probably around 9am. Then again, there will be people out much earlier to catch the sunrise, that's for sure.  Please indicate whether you will be joining us, so we have a rough idea of how many people we can expect. Please note that this is not a confirmed booking or anything. Whoever shows up will be welcome.  If you can join us only for one day, Saturday or Sunday, that'll be fine, too, of course.

Swiss Photography Club G+967*18 August 2012 (1 day)* This photowalk leads us to the Big Aletsch Glacier. The glacier is located in the Bernese Alps, we will access it from the village Fiesch, Valais. We meet at 8 am, going up to Fiescheralp by cablecar. It will take us 2 to 3 hours to get to the glacier by an easy or medium hike (no uphill). At Märjelensee, a small restaurant is waiting for us. After lunch, we will take a tour on the surface of the glacier in a small group. We return to the village Fiesch in the evening by cablecar. *Location* Fiesch is located in the upper Valais, in 27km / 30 minutes distance from Visp. Fiesch is easily accessible by train and car. *Meeting point / meeting time* We meet at 8.00 am at the valley station of the cablecar directly in Fiesch. http://goo.gl/maps/Ms4Ip We buy tickets and take the 8.30 am cablecar up to Fiescheralp or Eggishorn. Ticket price Fiescheralp retour is CHF 26.20 (13.10 with half-tax) Ticket price Eggishorn / Fiescheralp retour is CHF 38.40 (19.20 with half-tax) *Access hike* We have two options: For perfect weather, we can take the cablecar up to Eggishorn top station for a magnificient overview over the Big Aletsch Glacier. We have to walk down a medium-steep trail down to Märjelensee (approx. 500 meter altitude difference, 1.5 - 2 hrs). In cloudy weather conditions, we hike directly from Fiescheralp to Märjelensee (2 - 3 hrs). There is almost no change in altitude, and we use a 800m long tunnel. *Märjelensee* At Märjelensee we will have lunch in the "Gletscherstube". After this, we walk down to the Big Aletsch Glacier, passing several lakes. *The glacier walk* A limited group of 10 people will be guided on the surface of the glacier. If time permits, we will walk to the middle moraine stream of this wonderful glacier. Outstanding photos are guaranteed! *Please note that there are some reservations already.* *Return hike* We have to leave the Märjelensee area latest at 4 pm in order to catch the last afternoon cablecar at 6 or 6.30 pm. Anyone who likes to stay longer or have dinner in a restaurant at Fiescheralp can take the last cablecar down at 9.45 pm (no cablecars between 6.30 pm and 9.45 pm). *Gear for the hike* What should you wear? Well, you definitely should bring hiking boots (simple running shoes are not sufficient). If you have a pair of hiking poles, bring them. Make sure you have some light gloves, a cap and a jacket available as the evening can get cold. A spare shirt is comfortable as well. That's it. *Gear for the glacier surface walk* If you are confirmed participant of the glacier surface walk, you need some durable gloves and long pants as the glacier surface is really sharp edged. Also bring band-aid and a small bandage for first aid. *Important: As we walk on a rope, you need a harness*. You can rent a harness at every mountain sports shop. In case you have no possibility to rent one, please contact me (@108665887827650124203). No crampons needed. *Photo gear* This walk is about landsAletsch Glacier Walk2012-08-18 08:00:0012

"Hope" -Bodie Island, Outer Banks, NC
www.athenacarey.com

Its been ages since I uploaded a new photo. Honestly I have been so busy with life and work that I haven't had a chance to edit any of my own. This one caught my eye today though as I was emptying memory cards for my next trip.

It's from my very recent trip to the Outer Banks with the +Mountains To Sea Workshops guys. We'd headed out to Bodie Island to shoot the lighthouse, and well...me being the non-conformist that I am, this is what I ended up shooting. Standing in the area that says you should be in it because there are poisonous snakes. :)

Tomorrow I'm off to Ireland with clean CF cards and the desire to see a lot of sunrises. I hear they don't have any snakes there.  Thanks St. Patrick. ;)

Fancy a photography trip to Scotland?  :)

This year the Euro Photowalk is going to be in Scotland, September 18-20th and will include lots of modern architecture, two cool bridges, a lighthouse. a few castles and a pier.  We’ll spend Saturday in Glasgow shooting modern buildings and Sunday head out (early!) to see a bit of the countryside. So format those memory cards and charge your batteries, because we’ll be shooting quite a few locations! 

Our plan is to share three meals together - Friday dinner, Saturday lunch and Sunday lunch and we’d like to make bookings to ensure that this is possible.  Please RSVP here if you will join us for the Photowalk and which (all!) meals you will also join.  :)

“Things go away to return, brightened for the passage” ~ A.R. Ammons

As always when I am away from her, I am looking forward to my return to the sea.  In two weeks, I’ll be back on the coast, gazing out across a different sea, with warm sun on my cheeks and a gentle breeze blowing through my hair, listening spellbound to the secrets in her crashing waves.  She tempts me.

Two years ago in March, I was in Borneo watching the sun set across the South China sea.  At that time, I never imagined that a year later, I would be watching the sunset from the tip of the African continent and another year later from the southern end of Ireland.  

What and amazing life to live, on this beautiful planet.  So much to discover, so much to return to.

+Armand Dijcks sharing a very cool videography secret from the Africa with Athena videos. So cool. 😊

www.AfricaWithAthena.com

This is me practicing my upside down tripod stabilization technique while filming +Athena Carey in South Africa, for the Africa with Athena tutorial - http://africawithathena.com - Here's how it works:

I needed to create a couple of sweeping camera moves and "walking shots" close to the ground. Since I didn't have any fancy stabilization equipment with me (that would have been way too heavy to carry across these dunes anyway) I used a different techique. Basically, I turn my tripod upside down and hold it by the center column. That column has been extended exactly to the point where my hand is at the center of gravity of the whole tripod-camera assembly. This prevents lateral movements of my hand from tilting the camera.

In addition, I extend the tripod legs and fold them outward a bit, which further reduces the tendency of the whole thing to rotate with any uncoordinated moves of my hand. I hold the tripod with the tips of my fingers and my arm somewhat extended, to make it's motion smoother.

This way I can walk and even run across uneven terrain, and it will look surprisingly smooth. The only problem is that it gets physically tiring after 20 seconds or so, holding out all that weight with your arm extended while walking. So now you know my secret to creating (almost) perfectly smooth camera motion shots without expensive gear.___+Armand Dijcks sharing a very cool videography secret from the Africa with Athena videos.

Africa with Athena is a holistic video tutorial for photographers.

Let me take you with me on a trip to the Western Cape of Africa where I will explain to you what photography means to me and how I approach it: from planning a trip, finding shooting locations, dealing with weather, choosing gear, connecting to the places, using light and composition to express her feelings all the way through to downloading the files and processing the images. Join me in this three part adventure for over an hour of photography instruction.

I was going to take my +fstop Gear Guru for this trip. My gear is a lot smaller/lighter these days. But I dis covered while packing that the Loka UL weighs less and packs flatter. LOVE this bag. 😊

This is getting exciting - every time I see a new clip from the video I am delighted again by how talented +Armand Dijcks is.  And amazed that I did a darn good job at talking.  lol :)  

Have a sneak peek at the Africa with Athena trailer and then head over to www.africawithathena.com to pre-order the video so that you can get it at the reduced pre-sale price.  ;)

July 2015 Outer Banks, NC Workshop
I'm very pleased to say that I'll be doing another workshop in the stunning Outer Banks of North Carolina with the +Mountains To Sea Workshops guys - +Alistair Nicol  and +Tommy White this summer.  We had a fabulous time last year shooting sunrise at a pier, sunset and stars at a lighthouse, dunes, more piers, sunrise at another lighthouse, laughing and eating great food together, learning a lot in the classroom and then shooting a bonus ruined pier.  I absolutely can not wait to get back and do it all again.  Join us! :)

Last Autumn, +John Dunne, +Andy Bitterer and I lead our annual photowalk this year to Donegal Ireland.  +Donegal Photowalk 2014  We all had a marvellous time and were for the most part treated to wonderful weather along with the stunning locations.

This location, Burt Castle required smoozing with the locals for some creative parking permissions, mooing with a few cows, a steep uphill climb, scraping over some barbed wire and carefully avoiding a farmer's freshly planted field.  But as you can see, it was well worth it.

Here’s a quick edit with Tonality Pro (+Macphun Software) from my very fun, first time rooftopping with some of the Dubai greats, +Beno Saradzic  +Daniel Cheong and +Baber Afzal (who got us access to the roof - yay!). Thank you guys!! I had a fabulous time. And it was made even better with some very tasty Pakistani breakfast afterwards. Yum!

I've had the Sony A7r since this past summer and have been enjoying it, but I'm still using it with a metabones adaptor and my Canon glass, so the focusing is slow and the lenses weigh as much as the body.  I think it's time to consider some native glass.

So +Sony Gurus and photography friends, which lens do you think I would love more - the 24-70 F4 or the 16-35 F4?  And why?  My similar, frequently used Canon glass is a 24-105 F4L and a 16-35 F2.8L II)

 “For time is the longest distance between two places.” ~Tennessee Williams

It’s getting close to being two months now since I have been able to be out with my camera, and while I have had some nice things going on here at home, I’m starting to feel stir crazy. I think I need to plan my next trip. Suggestions? 

This is one of the destinations included in my project, Africa with Athena.  I'd happily go back to any of those locations.  :)

I must also challenge another photographer to participate, so today I will ask +Stefan Bäurle today.  I'm looking forward to what color looks like from him! :)

This photo is from a delightful day that I spent with +Johan Peijnenburg, driving around the Swiss countryside looking for interesting things to photograph.  We've spent many fun days like that together.  I think it's time to schedule some more. :D

I've recently been challenged to participate by +John Kosmopoulos  +Niki Aguirre  and +Thomas Schaller  to do the BW/Color challenge.  For now I’m doing only the color part, but might go back and turn these all into BWs for Thomas later.  ☺

I must also challenge another photographer to participate, so today I will ask +Benjeev Rendhava  because I’d like to see some colorful photos of one of my favorite countries, Malaysia.  ☺

This colorful burst is of Ponte Rialto at sunset, taken last year on a fabulous trip with +Ken Kaminesky, +Elia Locardi  and +Naomi Locardi.  Those were a few wonderful days!  Now we just need to figure out where in the world and when the reunion is.  Can’t wait.  :D

I must also challenge another photographer to participate, so today I will ask +Benjeev Rendhava  because I’d like to see some colorful photos of one of my favorite countries, Malaysia.  ☺

This colorful burst is of Ponte Rialto at sunset, taken last year on a fabulous trip with +Ken Kaminesky, +Elia Locardi  and +Naomi Locardi.  Those were a few wonderful days!  Now we just need to figure out where in the world and when the reunion is.  Can’t wait.  :D___

I must also challenge another photographer to participate, so today I will ask +David Orr  because he foolishly delightfully expressed interest  ;)

Today’s image is from a trip to the Western Cape back in March with +Armand Dijcks  and +Brit Hammer.  This trip was the start of a very cool project, Africa with Athena that we are working on together.  I’m flying out of town today, but as soon as I getback from this trip I’... more »

+Nathan Wirth's Five Day Black & White Photographer Color Image Challenge - DAY ONE

I've enjoyed seeing color work from many of my favorite black and white photographers lately.  I've also been challenged to participate by +John Kosmopoulos and +Niki Aguirre, so I guess I'll be out on that color limb for a few days.  I'm going to need to modify the challenge though because I can't post on the five days consecutively as I'll be out in the bush from Thursday.  I'll still do five days though, I promise.  :)

I must also challenge another photographer to participate, so today I will ask +Sharon Tenenbaum  who does beautiful architectural photo work.  :)

This photo is actually a second cut from a wonderful morning that I spent thigh deep in the sea with +Alistair Nicol.   One of these days I’ll have time to process thefirst cuts!!... more »
